June date for last Calibras

THE last Vauxhall Calibra - which has notched up 230,000 sales during its seven year production life - will roll off the production line in Finland in June.

Despite the Calibra's undoubted popularity, Vauxhall believes it is no longer economic to make a car based on the old Cavalier platform. It claims coupes are only affordable when they are based on a mass produced chassis. There are no plans at present to replace the Calibra, although the manufacturer is keeping its options open.

Two run out special editions will be sold throughout 1997 and into 1998, although details remain sketchy. The first is understood to be called the SE8 and is expected to feature air conditioning, special alloy wheels and a rear spoiler.
